Watch SNL brilliantly lampoon Trump supporters in 'Racists for Trump' sketch

ICYMI white nationalist and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke, came out in support of could-be president of the United States Donald Trump last week.

When asked what he knew about the KKK and of Duke's endorsement by CNN's Jake Tapper the Donald said:

I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So I don't know. I don't know - did he endorse me, or what's going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke; I know nothing about white supremacists...

I have to look at the group. I mean, I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I'd have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them and certainly I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong.

You may have groups in there that are totally fine - it would be very unfair. So give me a list of the groups and I'll let you know.

Following his apparent refusal to condemn the KKK Saturday Night Live brilliantly skewered the apparent Trump supporter base in a sketch dubbed 'Racists for Trump'.

"The media's been saying pretty negative thing about Donald Trump... But what are real Americans saying?" the spoof campaign ad asks.

Cue a bunch of soundbites you might actually expect to escape the lips of any "real American".

He's going to take our economy from here, to here.

He's definitely not PC.

So why do I support Trump? Three words: Good at business.

He's not some cautious politician. He says what I'm thinking.

I don't know what it is. I just like the guy.

But look a little closer (or wait for the camera to pan out) and it turns out all those blue collar, regular hard-working Americans are all also a bunch of racists.

He's going to take our economy from here, to here.

...Oh dear.
